Add item default category

Now you can easily create multiple menu items linking to the ads submission forms with the predefined category.

We've added the new parameter "Default category" to the "Add item" menu settings. You can define it in the "Params tab" and set the default category for the item.

Image uploader tmp path parameter

We've updated the "uploader configuration" settings. You can define the server path for storing images temporarily, instead of using the default path only.

Copy default ordering for custom fields

A new option for custom fields was added. This can be useful when a user adds a lot of custom fields, has a lot of categories, and wants to add another and change its order. Instead of setting it in each category, he can use the new button and apply the order of the fields to all categories automatically.

Recently viewed ads for DJ-Classifieds Items module

The "Items module" settings were updated. Now you choose "Recently viewed ads" option for DJ-Classifieds items ordering. This will allow displaying recently viewed ads in the order in which they were viewed (most recent first).

Unlimited ads in the subscription plan

For each of the offered/defined subscription plans, you can display information on the front page on the availability of unlimited plans. Until now, it was only possible to provide a specific number of ads available. The unlimited option must be defined in the backend by adding the "-1" value in the "Adverts in plan" field.

Popup window with login redirect on the Profile page

The feature works on the front page when an unlogged user on the page (guest) clicks the "contact this advertiser" icon. As a result, a popup window appears informing that you must log in and displaying "Ok / cancel" options. Selecting "ok" redirects the user to the login page.
